BestDrive LLC, a Continental tire and ContiLifeCycle commercial tire dealer and retreader, has opened a new location in Kansas City, Kan.
Established in 2010, BestDrive now has 21 commercial tire centers across the United States, with plans to expand into eight additional states by the end of 2018.
The Kansas City location officially opened on June 29, 2017.
BestDrive’s Kansas City tire center is a 32,000-square-foot retail and service space. Less than two miles from the I-35 and I-635 interchange, the location is ideal for access by its long-haul, regional haul, and on/off-road fleet customers, according to the company.
“BestDrive is committed to helping our customers achieve their lowest overall driving cost,” says Sonny Simpson, managing director of BestDrive, LLC.
“Our customers turn to us for our tire expertise and service excellence. Our rapid expansion over the past seven years is evidence of the high quality service we’re able to deliver to our customers, and the value we’re able to provide for them.”
Three commercial fleets have already joined the BestDrive customer roster in Kansas City. Linaweaver Construction and Hauling is a second-generation family-owned business headquartered in Lansing, Kan., and was awarded the 2009 Public Works Project of the Year by the Kansas City Metro Chapter for the Landing Park Restoration and Three-Mile Creek Siphon. C.A.R. Transport is a specialty auto hauler with locations in Kansas and Texas. Seaboard Transport, headquartered in Shawnee Mission, Kan., is primarily engaged in domestic pork production and processing, while its parent company, Seaboard Corp., is a diversified international agribusiness and transportation company employing more than 20,000 people worldwide.
BestDrive commercial tire centers offer total fleet tire management with Continental and General Tire brand products, as well as other supplemental tire brands. The company equips fleets with new tires and ContiTread retread solutions as part of the ContiLifeCycle program, which is designed to lower costs and prolong the life of a Continental tire. BestDrive also provides innovative fleet technology such as ContiPressureCheck Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and Continental’s VDO Roadlog for ELD Mandate compliance.
